Fix Auto San Marcos Opens in California


Fix Auto USA announced the opening of Fix Auto San Marcos, located at 917 Rancheros Drive, San Marcos CA 92069.

Francisco Cid Del Prado, co-owner of Fix Auto San Marcos, has spent more than 32 years in the automotive industry as an employee of multiple shops, and now a business owner for the last decade. One of his first jobs was a DuPont paint mixer at his father’s paint mixing warehouse.

After many years, Francisco and his wife, Ivonne, co-owner of Fix Auto San Marcos, entered the automotive collision industry. This industry passion and relevant work experience served as a natural segue for Francisco and Ivonne to join the Fix Auto USA family.

“We have been waiting for an opportunity like this for more than 10 years,” said Ivonne Cid Del Prado. “We believe in this path, and we are ready to meet and exceed all expectations! By partnering with Fix Auto USA, it feels like our potential is unlimited. We believe in the brand and that’s why we chose to join the network. Give us any goal and we are ready to meet and exceed it!”

The new facility measures 7,300 square feet and a total lot size of 17,000 square feet. The shop is supported by 16 dedicated team members. The Fix Auto San Marcos team holds numerous OEM certifications including Ford, Lincoln, Cadillac, General Motors, Kia, Hyundai, Dodge and a hybrid electric vehicle certification. The center also holds an aluminum certification as well as an I-CAR Platinum certification, only granted to individuals capable of achieving and maintaining the highest level of service and repair.

“Family is a huge motivator for us,” said Francisco Cid Del Prado. “I am proud to be doing this work with my wife and children and I look forward to growing alongside them as we support the San Marcos community. This country welcomed us with open arms as Mexican immigrants, and we want the community to trust in us so we can all achieve success together.”

The Cid Del Prado family is passionate about giving back to their local community and they assist with the operation and volunteer efforts at a local Seventh Day Adventist church.

“It brings me great pride to see the Fix Auto USA family continue to grow, quite literally,” said Damien Reyna, COO, U.S. collision, Driven Brands. “The best part about our franchise system is that it directly empowers individuals who show up ready to work. With an industrious effort and the support of our system and specialized training, I have no doubt Fix Auto San Marcos will reach new heights in the southern California community.”

Please join the network in welcoming Fix Auto San Marcos to the Fix Auto USA family.
